Primarily because there's no border between Florida and its neighbouring states, so it would be impossible to track the number of people who actually visited the state. Even if you just tracked flights, you won't have to fill out a visa form or anything so it would be extremely difficult for the government to track who's visiting and who's coming back. Either way, if it was possible to track it would be at the top of the list for sure.

*No international border (just for the nitpickers out there)

but then how do they track the number of tourists in the Schengen Area (Europe)? we don't need to do anything when we travel to other countries either

@Etanna bc they document the country you arrive in if you arrive from a non-Schengen country. For the Schengen Area, some countries have you stop at border patrol areas, but they don’t require passports. Other numbers are estimates.

Don't you have to fill in your details at the hotel? My understanding is that they gather the data from these cards in bulk. Like so and so many overnight stays from country x, so and so many from country y. And maybe an estimate for daytrips?

In Schengen they track hotel arrivals yeah. It's not unique visitors, nor day trippers. International airport/border arrivals are different statistics.

Shocking that there are more visitors from the Netherlands, Spain, or Venezuela than come in from China or Japan... but I guess maybe this is because there are few direct flights to Florida from Asia, so they are counted as first visiting Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York, or wherever their connecting flight is.

A lot of international visitors come for the Disneyworld parks. In China they have 2 of these and Japan 1. There is one in Paris, but Europeans are drawn to Florida for the weather as well and also its not too far to fly to.

And all 886,000+ from Brazil go to Disneyworld- all at once! LOL I went one October, suppose to be a slow time, and there were hundreds of school groups from Brazil there.

I had the same experience visiting Universal Studios in Florida. The entire place was packed with Brazilian high school sports teams. That's why I guessed Brazil first for this quiz.
